The January Supreme Court Docket
The US Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral argument in 12 cases in January. Of the twelve, four are of particular importance unless you count a copyright law case involving MGM and the movie “Raging Bull.” Two cases involve bankruptcy law and one involves tax law and I will not bore the reader with details of these arcane cases.

Two pictures that show the utter mendacity of anti-gun websites.
This is a time where two pictures are worth more than a thousand words each:
The single woman society
The Virginia governor’s race was yet another example of the massive voting gap in a huge demographic: single people, particularly single women. According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli won handily on the “hard” issues facing Virginia voters, and won most other demographic slices, but Democrat Terry McAuliffe won big with single people, crushing Cuccinelli by nearly fifty points among single women. A similar dynamic could be | Read More »
Ken Cuccinelli Didn’t Lose Because He Was ‘Too Conservative’
Last night’s loss to Democrat Terry McAuliffe was tough to swallow. The infinitely better man, Republican Ken Cuccinelli, lost by 54,946 votes. Yet, it wasn’t because he was “too conservative;” that’s the one thing I don’t want to hear concerning why he lost. Simply, Ken Cuccinelli ran a bad campaign. For one thing, he failed to fight hard for the issues that have worked in his | Read More »

The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. Do more guns mean more murders and suicides? A Harvard study of European countries may surprise you. Or cause you to yawn in recognition of something we’ve long understood.

Total Recall: Women, Hispanics, and Blue Collar Workers United To Defend Gun Rights In Colorado
As conservatives celebrate their victory over booting anti-gun legislators in Colorado’s recall elections last night, let’s look at the some of the reasons that contributed to their success. In Dave Weigel’s September 11 post on Slate, the spokeswoman for the recall, Jennifer Kerns, provided the information and showed that even Democrats love their guns. Granted, gun rights supporters have known this for quite some time. The only people | Read More »
Total Recall: Two Anti-Gun Colorado Legislators Booted, Huge Victory For Gun Rights
In the aftermath of Sandy Hook, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper decided that it was time to curtail his residents’ right to exercise their Second Amendment rights. He had some political cover.
